Moodle: View Course Evaluation Results

Bryn Mawr uses Watermark Course Evaluation and Surveys software to conduct end-of-semester course evaluations. Links and reminders within Moodle make it easier for students to complete surveys and for instructors to access results (this article).

Before you start, you will need the following: 

  • An Instructor of record role in a Bryn Mawr course that is currently under evaluation (response rates only) or evaluated in a prior term (responses)

View response rates and responses

  1. Navigate to your Moodle Dashboard
  2. Click Open Block Drawer if the right side drawer is closed.
  3. In the EvaluationKit User Access block, click Go to your Course Evaluations dashboard

Note for New Instructors: The EvaluationKit User Access block won't appear until the course evaluations for your first term start. This is normal.  

  1. Click in the appropriate block on your Watermark Course Evaluations and Surveys Dashboard:
    • Reponse Rate Tracker -- completion data for course evaluations that are currently underway
    • Instructor Results and Project Results -- links to response data from previous semesters' evaluations. 

Please note that you WILL NOT see responses: 

  • For the most recent semester, until the day after the final grade submission deadline.
  • For evaluations prior to fall 2021, the first year Bryn Mawr College used this platform. 

If any other courses are missing from this list or you have questions about evaluations prior to fall 2021, please email or contact the Provost's Office.   


If you don't see the EvaluationKit User Access block

Is this your first term teaching at Bryn Mawr (since fall 2021)?

If the Provost's Office has not started accepting course evaluation submissions (typically in the last week classes; exact dates will be listed in a memo they email each semester) it is normal that the block is missing. Once course evaluations are underway, the block will appear and you will be able to see response rates. (You will not be able to see actual responses until the day after final grades for the term are due).

Are you an Instructor of record in at least one Moodle course? 

People who teach, but have a different Moodle role such as Other editing teacher or Non-editing teacher may evaluated in other ways. Email or ask the Moodle Instructor of record or your department chair for help.

Clear your browser cache or open Moodle in a private browser. 

Many types of tech issues are fixed by clearing old cached (stored) data and forcing your browser to reload everything, which both of these actions accomplish.

Reset your Moodle Dashboard.

If you've customized your Dashboard, you may have accidently deleted or moved the EvaluationKIT User Access blockTo restore it, go to your toggle the Edit Mode button on, then click the Reset this page to default button that appears.

Make sure you are on the Moodle Dashboard or My Courses page.

The Evaluation Kit User Access block only appears in the block drawer on these pages. It does not appear inside individual courses that have been or are being evaluated. If you click the Go to your Course Evaluations link inside that block, it will take you to your Dashboard in the Watermark Course Evaluations and Surveys platform, which will have links to response rates and responses for different surveys. 

Use an alternative method to access the Watermark Course Evaluation and Surveys site.

Troubleshooting the Instructor Dashboard

Response rates for current semester courses are missing 

No response rates should appear until the Provost's Office opens the course evaluations for student submissions. This is typically on or around the last week of classes; exact dates are in the course evaluation memo the Provost's Office emails to faculty each semester. If course evaluations are open, but a course is missing please contact

Response rates for current semester courses are low

The Provost's Office recommends setting aside time at the beginning of a class session for students to fill out course evaluations and reminding them to bring a laptop, tablet, or phone with a web browser to class on that day for that purpose.

Evaluation responses are missing

  • You should only see responses for past terms. Responses for the current term won't be visible before the day after the deadline to submit final grades for that term. If that deadline has passed and responses still aren't visible, email
  • You won't see data for courses taught prior to fall 2021, the semester that Bryn Mawr College began using Watermark Course Evaluations and Surveys. Contact the Provost’s Office for help with older responses.
